handmade for my girl

My baby girl turns two tomorrow. Fancy that. I’ve been busy making her some birthday presents.
I finished sewing this little doll, and made a basket and blanket too. I stitched Ms. M’s initials and the date of her second birthday on the back corner of the doll’s dress.

I’ve made her a sweet top too, with a matching hat…sweet top and hat 
… and a pinafore with matching pants.pinafore and pants
Ms. M is super special to me so I made her a cape to reflect her super-status in my heart.Super M
I made her some jeans too… just because they’re practical and she is growing so fast…jeans
… and a denim dress just because.denim dress
Tonight I am finishing sewing her birthday dress, icing her birthday cake, wrapping these presents and of course blowing up balloons… all the time reflecting on these most magical two years that have passed.

  4. What a lucky little girl, so many beautiful presents. I wish I could sew like this, My daughter has been wanting a fabric dolls basket like this for a while now. However I am not a good sewer and am still wondering will I or won't I make christmas pj's.

    I think I will. Thanks for being so inspiring:)

  26. Those are some wonderful clothes... I haven't made any for my two since they were two!! They are now 10 and 13!! If you do get a moment, I'd love to know which pattern you used for the red trousers... Sorry i mean pants! Still getting used to that word over here. I love the pleats and the ruching at the back... I fancy scaling them up for a pair of linen pants for my 10 year old.
